Ok All, ive got the ABS escort you know the one that causes issues when you try and upgrade :D I've just put the Mondeo calipers and carriers and pads on along with the focus st170 discs and they all seem to align up with no issues they don't catch or scrape. I've used the original bolts and no washers, i have gone out and bought m12x40mm bolts with m12 washers but it looks like i don't need them and I've drilled the hub out to 12mm. I read online you can do this upgrade with the ABS model but even if i try and space the caliper out the washers or the carrier hit my ABS ring any ideas from you lovely lot would help me out because im scratching my head wondering if ive messed up or if my car just likes me for a change.

I had a pair of Granada Cosworth calipers on my Mexico but when someone wrote it of I bought a GTI and had the same problem so stuck with the standard brakes until some High Spec kit appeared on Ebay for a decent price.  Since you've drilled them out (why I got Cossie items) you kind of stuck without replacing the hub carrier unless there is another solution, different discs or grinding some of the meat off the caliper to clear the ABS ring.
